Hermes

So, who is Hermes in really? It is say that Hermes has reborn with His memory intact (because Mnemosine, Goddess of the Memory is His godmother), and thanks to His cunning and knowledge, when it was just a newborn, concocted a perfect strategy to get Zeus let him become an Olympic God (right that His mother resignate). And, indeed that in a few days Hermes got its purpose: According to the classical texts, Hermes convinced the moon to that night She get out twice, thus lets Hermes being able to steal their cattle to Apollo, and later to create the first meat-sacrifice to the Olympic Gods.

POSEIDON

Filho de Cronos e Réia, Poseidon era irmão de Zeus, Hades, Hera, Héstia e De­méter. Como todos os seus irmãos, exceto Zeus, Poseidon foi engolido pelo pai Cronos, mas depois regurgitado. Após deporem o pai e aprisioná-lo no Tártaro junto com os outros titãs, Poseidon e seus irmãos realizaram um sorteio para dividir o universo entre si: Poseidon recebeu o mar, Zeus, os céus e Hades, o mun­do subterrâneo. No geral, Poseidon é repre­sentado nos mitos como uma divindade turbulenta e som­bria. Seu poder considerável diz respeito, sobretudo, à força bruta da natureza, manifesta nos mares, terremotos, rios, secas, inundações e cavalos. Selvageria reprimida e ira amea­çadora eram algumas de suas pri

What do you know about Hermes?

Probably, the first thing that you will thought or you'll read in any general document of Classical Mithology, is the better known about Hermes. That is that: “Hermes is the son of Zeus and the Pleyade Maya. He ascended to the Olympus with a very clever strategy, and He became the messenger of his father and the God of thieves and merchants. Also you will think of Hermes as the God associated with the Mercurial influences of the ruler planet of communication and travel”. Okay, all this is correct, but it is only a superficial mask of the attractive costume of this God. Hermes is the founder of the Hermetic traditions as the Ordo Aurum Solis. Therefore, we invite you to elaborate a little mor

A group of philosophers, writers, and artists worked together to reopen the ancient Athenian Academy of Plato. Among the leading proponents of the Neoplatonic academy in addition to Ficino, were Pico della Mirandola, Poliziano, Nicholas Cusano, Leon Battista Alberti, Cristoforo Landino, and the most important members of the Medici family, Giuliano de Medici and Lorenzo the Magnificent. After the capture of Costantinopoli in 1453, Byzantine intellectuals

Was Pharaoh Divine?

Introduction Obviously the answer is No, the question is did the Egyptian in the street believe that he was and why was it necessary that he believed the religious teachings. To understand the development of kingship and the belief in the divinity of the pharaoh we need to look at the development of the civilization in the Nile Valley and compare it to the progress made elsewhere in the world. Religion and religious ceremony was necessary to hold together the primitive civilizations and cultures that were beginning to form some 7,000 years ago or more. The great fear of the time was death and the blackness that this brought. The promise of life after death for those that believed and followe

Plotinus

Meditations we post here are excerpts from classical text linked to Western Tradition. It is good to meditate on these texts as this wisdom is really eternal! We hope you will share with us your thoughts. ​ Plotinus “There are men [the gnostics], bound to human bodies and subject to desire, grief, anger, who think so generously of their own faculty that they declare themselves in contact with the Intelligible World, but deny that the sun possesses a similar faculty less subject to influence, to disorder, to change; they deny that it is any wiser than we, the late born, hindered by so many cheats on the way towards truth. Their own soul, the soul of the least of mankind, they declare deathles
